British Ambassador to Nepal
We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Nepal. The British Embassy in Kathmandu provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Nepal.
Our work covers a range of issues including representing the British government in its relations with the Nepalese government and the people of Nepal.
We develop Britain’s relationship with Nepal as part of the British government’s wider role overseas of working for British interests, including those of individual British citizens and organisations.
If you’re in Nepal and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call (977) (1) 4237100. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Nepal, call 020 7008 1500.
